There are many things to consider before making the decision to undergo breast reduction surgery. The procedure can help give you a more proportional appearance, boosting your confidence, as well as alleviate health problems that occur from having larger breasts.

A breast reduction removes excess breast tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and alleviate discomfort. Breast reduction costs can widely vary.

Back to Cosmetic procedures. If you're feeling very distressed over the size of your breasts or they're causing physical symptoms such as backache, you may be able to have a breast reduction on the NHS. All independent clinics and hospitals that provide cosmetic surgery in England must be registered with the CQC.
